West Fargo Public Library now offering curbside delivery via partnership with Little Red Reading Bus
UPDATE: West Fargo Public Library partners with Little Red Reading Bus to offer curbside delivery of book bundles
The West Fargo Public Library is excited to partner with the Little Red Reading Bus of West Fargo this summer to offer curbside delivery of Book Bundles. Patrons are now able to place holds for bundles of children’s books to be delivered directly to their home with help from the Little Red Reading Bus. This new delivery program will replace the former Little Red Reading Bus partnership, meaning the bus will no longer be making stops or serving as a pickup location.
At this time, only Book Bundles are available for curbside delivery. Book Bundles are bundles of children’s books grouped by theme. To reserve a Book Bundle, patrons must use the Book Bundle request form found at westfargolibrary.org. Within the form, patrons are able to choose the Little Red Reading Bus as their delivery option and provide a delivery address. Delivery addresses must be within the City of West Fargo or the West Fargo Public School District boundary.
The procedures for curbside delivery are.
- Patrons can place holds for Book Bundles via the Book Bundle Request Form.
- After submitting a hold request, patrons will receive notification that their materials are ready to be delivered. Holds will be available on the Little Red Reading Bus the Wednesday following receipt of the notification. You may place your order as late as noon on the Wednesday you are hoping to have your books delivered. Orders received after noon on Wednesday will be delivered the following week. Your books will be delivered to your home between 5 and 8 p.m. that Wednesday.
- This modified pickup process will still include no physical contact between staff and patrons. Patrons are asked to wait to grab their items after the staff person has returned inside the bus.
Patrons are still able to pick up held items including books, audiobooks, DVDs, music CDs and materials for Summer Reading Program activities at the library, using our curbside pickup service.
